Title: LuxMark v2.0 released
Post by: Stefan on January 30, 2012, 06:08:17 PM
LuxMark  (http://www.luxrender.net/wiki/LuxMark)v2.0 includes SLG2 as rendering engine with Metropolis Light Transport, Multiple Importance Sampling, Image reconstruction done on the GPU, support for multiple OpenCL platforms (i.e. Nvidia users can use Intel or AMD CPU device) and many more new features. The new features rise the complexity of the benchmark of nearly one order of magnitude and it should be able to put some serious stress on the new generation of GPUs. The capability to submit results to a centralise WEB database looks like the most interesting new feature of LuxMark v2.0: http://www.luxrender.net/luxmark

Here are some lesser known OpenCL benchmarks if you like to double-check

I have 295.51beta for win 7 x64 SP1.
I can't test in #Encog OpenCL Benchmark Utility# because I got error: local ratio cannot be greater than 1 despite default setting.
I will downgrade to 275.33whql and so try to test these new programs for see difference between OCL 1.0 and 1.1 performance, after I already know Luxmark performances issue.

I forgot they hard coded that bench for their country settings  ::)

In Germany we use a decimal comma instead of a decimal point.
So i need to replace 1.0 with 1 or 1,0
